The Velscope is an oral cancer screening device that could save your life. Oral cancer accounts for roughly 9,000 deaths annually (about 3% of all cancer deaths). Of all the major cancers, oral cancer has the worst 5 year survival rate at about 54%. Oral cancer is not usually diagnosed early enough so less than half of all cases are cured. The Velscope is the most powerful tool available for assisting in the discovery of oral abnormalities. It takes about a minute and is like a flashlight to detect oral cancer. Any suspicious areas can be biopsied with our laser and sent for observation.
